Selena Gomez is hitting lots of red carpets lately, promoting her new film Spring Breakers, which is otherwise known as “the one where James Franco is a drug dealer and some dark shit happens because this is a Harmony Korine movie and then Skrillex plays and it’s all very zeitgeisty.”
Anyway! This is giving Selena Gomez a lot of opportunities to wear sparkly, gaudy, statement-making things that starlets of her station are wont to wear. For example, before last night, her most recentÂ appearanceÂ involved one of those frilly neck ornamentÂ Gucci things.
This, however. This is different:
This is Gomez at last night’s Spring Breakers premiere in Berlin. The suit is Atelier Versace and has to be one of the ugliest things we’ve seen on the red carpet in a while.
…In our defense, we are usually so relentlessly biased toward women in pantsuits on the red carpet that we blindly like it every time it happens (what? you think online fashion criticism is objective?).
But this? It’s bad enough whenever some lady wears a skintight pantsuit as if it’s a cheesy plunging neck–MENSWEAR! IT CAN BE SEXY–but the gold piping and embellished gold shoulder take this into early ’00s Express territory. Pretty sure we even owned a black blazer with glittery pinstripes on it. So it deserves a place in our gallery.
Now, since we all agree this is a very, very ugly thing to wear, if we were to ask you, “Can you guess the only thing that would possibly make this uglier?” what would you say?
Take a moment.
Think about it.
Because the answer is obvious:
Of fucking course it’s backless.
